EXCELLENT GCSE RESULTS ACHIEVED AT QUEEN ANNE’S SCHOOL

Thursday 23rd August 2018

Queen Anne’s School is delighted to announce an excellent year of GCSE results with 47% of grades achieved at 9/8 (A*) and 69% of grades at 9-7 (A*-A). Headmistress, Julia Harrington said “The enthusiasm and hard work we have seen from this year group has been phenomenal; they have been thoroughly committed to their academic achievements and continue to show their determination to succeed in sixth form.” Queen Anne’s School offers both GCSE and IGCSE to students; for this reason grades are displayed numerically and alphabetically.

 

Exceptional top grades of 9/8/A* have been seen across all STEM subjects: 75% of biology grades, 85% of chemistry, 70% of physics and 50% of maths grades achieved were achieved at 9/8/A* and in computer science 100% of students achieved an A.

Many of the students will be continuing their STEM studies at A level; both Emmeline and Millie are jumping for joy with their results. Talented musician and lacrosse athlete (England U19 trials) Millie will go on to study biology, chemistry, maths and economics having achieved six 9’s, one 8, two A*’s and an A. Emmeline, who won the Speech Day award for ‘Consistent effort in the year group’ achieved three 9’s, two 8’s, one 7, one 6 and four A*’s and is looking forward to studying art, chemistry, maths and physics at sixth form. Sophie’s five 9’s, one 8 and three A*’s will see her continue to study sciences at A level with a desire to attend a leading university to study Astrophysics.

The co-curricular programme offered at Queen Anne’s School is one that all students embrace and helps them to develop them into all-round high achievers. Scholars, Hazelle and Emily, embrace the vast number of opportunities offered to students: Grade VII pianist and first-team student across sport, Hazelle, gained four 9’s, one 8, one 7 and four A*’s. And Emily, who is a fantastic dancer and is part of the U19 England lacrosse team, excelled in her grades with four 9’s, two 8’s and three A*’s.

 

In addition, Evie who excels in drama and is part of first team lacrosse and is looking ahead to joining the Queen Anne’s rowing team from September, achieved five 9’s, two 8’s and two A*’s.

The breakdown of Queen Anne’s School’s GCSE results is as follows:
